The Sunday Times top ten bestseller...

Nobody knew what was going on behind those doors. We were human toys. Just a piece of meat for someone to play with.

Barbara O'Hare was just 12 when she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital, Aston Hall, in 1971. From a troubled home, she'd hoped she would find sanctuary there. But within hours, Barbara was tied down, drugged with sodium amytal - a truth-telling drug - and then abused by its head physician, Dr Kenneth Milner.

The terrifying drug experimentation and relentless abuse that lasted throughout her stay damaged her for life. But somehow, Barbara clung on to her inner strength and eventually found herself leading a campaign to demand answers for potentially hundreds of victims.

A shocking account of how vulnerable children were preyed upon by the doctor entrusted with their care, and why it must never happen again.

From the Author:

Barbara O'Hare was admitted to Aston Hall psychiatric hospital when she was 12-years-old, where she was subjected to horrifying courses of 'treatment' from its head physician. Frequently injected with drugs, locked away and abused, Barbara has attempted to come to terms with her time at Aston Hall 46 years on. After creating the Facebook group 'Survivors of Aston Hall', victims have been brought together in their search for answers of how the abuse they suffered came to pass, and was kept secret for so long. Their efforts have led to a major police investigation and a meeting at the Houses of Parliament to have their story heard. Now, more than 100 people have come forward alleging abuse at Aston Hall.

This is Barbara's first book, exposing the abuse she suffered at Aston Hall.

New Paperback Quantity: 1

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. "We were an experiment. We had no rights, no love, nothing. Just a piece of meat for someone to play with." Barbara O'Hare was just 12 years old when she was admitted to Aston Hall mental institution in Derbyshire. From a troubled home, she'd hoped the hospital would offer some kind of protection from all that was wrong in the world, but within hours of being there Barbara was tied down, drugged, with sodium amytl--a truth telling drug that forces a person to lose all inhibitions--and then, she believes, abused by its head physician, Dr Kenneth Milner. The drug experimentation and abuse continued throughout her eight month stay in 1971, damaging her for life mentally and physically, and setting her on a trajectory of distress throughout the rest of her life. But somehow Barbara clung on to a grain of inner strength and eventually found herself heading up one of the biggest battles of her life; telling the world the truth about Aston Hall, setting up a support group and seeking answers and justice on behalf of potentially hundreds of victims. Told with all the tenacity and passion her fellow survivors have come to love Barbara for, The Hospital is a shocking account of just how easily vulnerable and forgotten children were preyed upon by the doctor entrusted with their care and why it must never be allowed to happen again. "Barbara O'Hare was just 12 when she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital, Aston Hall, in 1971. From a troubled home, she'd hoped she would find sanctuary there. But within hours, Barbara was tied down, drugged with sodium amytal--a truth-telling drug--and then abused by its head physician, Dr Kenneth Milner"--Back cover.
